WindTronics plans to build turbines in Windsor, Ontario

WINDSOR, Ont.

Ontario is paving the way for renewable energy by helping a wind turbine manufacturer, WindTronics, establish operations in the province.

WindTronics plans to assemble residential and small commercial wind turbines and conduct research and development in Windsor. The province is providing $2.7 million to help the company establish its Ontario operations, while the company is investing an additional $2.7 million. The investment will create 174 new jobs by 2012 and brings new capabilities to the province’s manufacturing and alternative energy sectors.

The WT6000 Honeywell Wind Turbine, the first model to be manufactured in Windsor, can generate over 2000 kW per year — up to 18 per cent of the electricity used by the average home. The turbine’s design reduces friction and allows electricity to be produced in slower winds.
